quarter on stocks have some thinking that president obama is a "bye." if market pundits are right, mitt romney shut be scare the because a reliable barometer just turned bad for him. stocks closing out the trading month up and the latest quarter up a lot more. the dow, despite today's soft performance, surging 2 percent this month, almost double that in the last three months. stronger quarterly gains for the s&p 500 and nasdaq which means in an election year, good for the incumbent almost every election year. 39 days out, does that mean that the president is in? our market watcher says no, not when you factor the recent state of bad economic numbers. or the scores of major u.s. companies throwing workers out. larry, which is the more dominant theme? >>guest: just to illustrate that point, look no further than a country like greece on the verge of a depression, 25 percent unemployment, civil unrest, yet their stock market is up almost as much as our stock market. it shows you how disconnected main street has become from wall street in this committee. the reason for that is because of unp
and marginal supporters. a last people who are saying they will vote if president obama right now, those marginal democrats who are nowhere near as excitessed as they were in 2008, by the time we get closer to the election a lot of those folks will be screened out in the screening models that pollsters use. this is likely to tighten up as we get down to the people who are actually going to show up on election day, not the people who are telling us they will five weeks out. >>neil: good point all, thank you, andy. >> what is it going to take for mitt romney to be it in the former c.e.o. of mcdonald's knows. >> mitt romney better wake up to the fact he better start bringing us down to the level where a coal miner in ohio gets it, a factory worker in cleveland gets it and a farmer in iowa gets it. if he doesn't, he will lose this election. >>neil: if you think that is tough love, wait until you hear the rest of that on mitt romney and president obama. that is tonight at 8:00 p.m. on fox business network. you are thinking, well, o'reilly is on at the same time, but his show repeats, like, 72
. where does that leave us? i think obama has done the right thing in terms of trying to use sanctions, trying to even have the cyber attack. it's not like he hasn't been engaged on it. but it just comes right down to the fact that the only thing that's going to stop them is attacking them. >> bill: i don't know about that. i'm going to put forth another scenario. i want to correct one thing. we do know what romney is going to do. he's going to embrace israel harder. he's going to say look, i'm -- >> how is that going to change anything? really, bill? >> bill: romney basically said he's being going to back their play and obama won't. >> i don't understand -- >> bill: he's not going to stop them. >> what is romney specifically going to do? go to war? >> bill: no, he's going to back israel and if they come to him and say now is the time, the governor will probably say go ahead. >> obama has done the same thing. obama has told them that. >> bill: no, he hasn't. >> yes, he has. >> bill: believe me when i tell you. netanyahu is no -- if netanyahu could vote, he's not voting for obama. there
in here now? all right. directly ahead, john stossel investigating whether or not the obama administration has watered down welfare work requirements. and then is it legal on a texas woman arrested, taken to jail for letting her children play outside. you think we're kidding? we're not. those reports are coming up ely. >> bill: stossel matters segment, when president obama took office, 32 million americans were on food stamps. now the number is 47 million. there are charges that the obama administration wants to get as many people as possible on the dole. >> when i think o reengage people in politics is we're doing serious policy work around what i will label working poor, they were struggling. and to the extent that we are doing research figuring out what kinds of government action will successfully make their lives better, we are putting together a potential majority of coalition that will vote. >> bill: we asked john stossel to investigate whether or not welfare work requirements are being watered down by the obama administration, perhaps for political reasons. here is stossel, the auth
on the line and we have an obligation to go after them and i do think president obama has been right to wage a tough campaign against al qaeda. al qaeda it is an enemy of the united states. host: we had this headline in " the washington times." "tells support for the rebels -- total support for the rebels." what is your take? guest: at least 25,000 people have died in syria. president obama said the right thing yesterday. the dictator of syria has to go. there has to be in the government. the syrian government is just strong enough to stay in power. they seem to be evenly matched. there doesn't seem to be a clear winner in this war. russia and china are blocking every attempt by the u.n. security council to help the refugees or the rebel alliance or to give a straight message to the dictator in syria. so they are no help. president obama does not want to intervene with troops because it would take too many american troops. i think he is made the right decision not to put american troops in. women have to consider arming the rebels -- we now have to consider arm the rebels. these poor people
that is the best way to go right now. >> we will take you to kent state university where president obama is campaigning in ohio. it is just about to get underway. ♪ ♪ [cheers] >> hello, kent state!

obama has done that -- and he has reserved the right at the end of the date for the united states foto use force, but he is putting that off for diplomacy. i worked with president george w. bush and secretary of state condoleezza rice on the iran issue for three years. there is a remarkable similarity between the george w. bush policy on iran and barack obama policy. i get the sense in my discussions with senators and congressmen and women on capitol hill that there is a basic bipartisan support for this policy that the last two american presidents have undertaken. we don't want to go to war right now, we don't want to open up the possibility of a third land war in the middle east after iraq and afghanistan. we want to focus on obama's because that is -- we want to focus on diplomacy because that is sensible. last point i will make this we have not had a sustained, substantive conversation with the iranian government since the jimmy carter administration, way back in 1979, 1980. to is in our interest not t talk to them, not because we like that government, but we want to see this resol
ever place in against iran, president obama has done that and reserved the right if absolutely necessary at the end of the day for the united states to use force. he is putting it out. he wants to focus on deputy. i worked for csh on the iran issue over three years, there's a remarkable similarity to me between the george w. bush policy in iran and the barack obama policy. i get the sense in my discussions with senators and congressman and women on capitol hill that there is a basic bipartisan support for the policy that the last two american presidents have undertaj. we don't want to go to war or open the possibility of a third land war in the middle east after afghanistan and iraq. we to focus on the diplomacy. we want to be tough minded and protect real israel and protect our finds in the arab world. i think that's what he's trying to do. i think it's a sensible policy we ought to give him the time or governor romney the time to negotiate with the iranians last point i'll make is an interesting fact that we have not had a sustained substantiative conversation with the irania
-- and it reminds me of president obama and the economy. if you can't get it right, it's time to get out. >> paul ryan called the refs out today are. you glad that he did that? >> paul was very angry that the green bay packers won and the referees took it away from him. >> i think a lot of people feel that way, right? the democrats are also paying in on the replay mean your. breaking out an nfl analyst. listen. >> with the football game, no, i did not think it was a touchdown. i thought the pass was down before there was joint progression. and we need to get more serious people in there. >> you can ask this man anything and he has an opinion. and from the former president to the sitting president, this tweet from barack obama, quote, nfl fans on both sides of the aisle, hope the rest of the lockout is settled soon. he also called that call terrible. i don't know much about football but that was not a touchdown. >> this is a $9 billion operation and somebody compared it to tick money. that's what they are squabbling over but forget it. and the staffty of the players there, too. >>> one storm chase
right. welcome back, everybody. vice-presidential nominee paul ryan slamming president obama's handling of anti-american protests overseas in the key swing state of ohio. he was in cincinnati and then lima, comparing the situation to iran's 1979 revolution which eventually led to protesters storming the u.s. embassy taking dozens of americans hostage and holding them for months. >> when the president came into office he made these grand speeches, beautiful rhetoric, great promises and he made the case that the power of his personality and his persuasion powers would calm things in the muslim world. would make things, would make people respect us and like us that much more. i mean, turn on the tv and it reminds you of 1979 tehran but they're burning our flags in capitals all around the world. they're storming our embassies. we've lost four of our diplomats and what is the signal that our government is sending the rest of the world? we're being equivocal on our values. we're being slow to speak up for individual rights, for human rights, for democracy. we're seeing countries stifle freedo
. arthel: i'm with you on that. thank you, david asman. jon: right now president obama and governor romney's paths set to cross again on the campaign trail today, this time in the critical battle ground state of ohio. both men are trying to win toss-up states like ohio and a key voting bloc as well; white males. as politico reports today, quote: after decades of taking a backseat to the growing voting demographics of women, latinos, middle class, white men are finding themselves front and center once again. let's get a fair and balanced debate underway. we're joined by simon rosenberg, president and founder of ndn and a former clinton campaign adviser, mary katherine hamm is editor at large of hot air.com and a fox news contributor. mary katherine, according to a gallup poll last month, mitt romney enjoyed a 24-point advantage among white males nationally. last week reuters/ip sos put it at 20%. is he in danger of losing, perhaps, more of this group? >> yeah. i mean, this is part of a larger gender gap problem, the gender gap you don't hear about which is traditionally democrats have had p
the country back on the right track? >> yeah! >> after four years the recovery that president obama promised is nowhere in sight. he said if he just could borrow a bunch of money and spend it on his friends unemployment would never get above 8%. it has been above 8% for 43 months. we had 23 million americans struggling to find work, 15% of our fellow countrymen and women are in poverty today. president obama, the economy is barely growing, he's run out of ideas and just the other day on tv he said that he can't change washington from the inside. why do we send presidents to washington in the first place? isn't that what we are supposed to do? don't we send them with a message to washington? if he can't change washington we need to change presidents and we need to elect this man the next president of the united states. the choice before us is very clear. we are offering real reforms for a real recovery. we cannot afford four more years of president obama's failed policies. what mitt romney is offering, what we are saying is, here are big ideas, big solutions, that are designed to get people b
this morning that the national debt stands at $16 trillion. right now if president obama gets four more years, he predicted the national debt would skyrocket to $20 trillion. he is putting that message out there. i had a chance to talk to mitt romney about some of this yesterday and suzanne, he did not seem concerned about this. he came to talk to us on his campaign plane yesterday saying that the obama campaign is basically trying to strike the football on the 30 yard line, there's still plenty of time left, and there is some truth to that. rick santorum and some of the midwestern states for a brief period, and then he was able to close the gap. mitt romney is a good closer. it will be interesting to watch these polls as the days going g on as we get to the debates that are coming up. they'll be critical. >> i'll have to beef up on my sports analogies as well. thank you, jim. good to see you. >>> a reminder we'll be dipping to both president obama and mitt romney's events here in ohio. the president is in bowling green. mitt romney is in bedford heights. we'll go live to both locations. to n
or republican. if president obama is right that he has the power to say, it does not matter what our federal immigration laws are, i will ignore those laws. and it is not simply prosecutorial discretion. when you register, you are effectively here illegally. if the president can do that, i would be curious what mayor castro would think of a republican president who would begin erasing losses from the books. >> i thought we went through that a couple of years back. [laughter] [applause] >> let's actually talk about that. let's talk about a very specific instance. >> the biggest case in a year as solicitor general is a tragic crime in houston. two teenage girls were horribly murdered. the judicial arm of united nations issued an order to reopen the conviction of 51 murders. and the president, george w. bush, signed an order that attempted to order the state courts to obey the world courts. as solicitor general working for greg debora, on behalf of the state of texas, went before the supreme court and said that the president does not have the authority to unilaterally ignore the law. in fact, i
. >>> all right. 33 minutes past the hour. our big story this morning, in just a few hours, president obama will address the united nations general assembly, the speech comes as israeli prime minister benjamin netanyahu has increased pressure on the white house to clearly set a red line for iran's nuclear program. joining me now from tel aviv is deputy speaker of the parliament, the knesset. thank you for joining us this morning. we appreciate your time. president obama will not be meeting with prime minister netanyahu. >> thank you. good morning. >> good morning to you. or any other heads of state while he is in new york. are you disappointed about that? >> yes, i think we are disappointed because prime minister netanyahu wanted to meet president obama to discuss with him the crucial issue of iran. i think it's a threat to the israelis but also to the americans. and only yesterday, we heard ahmadinejad saying very clearly, i want to wipe out israel but then he's going after the u.s. as well. i think they should have met in new york or d.c. hopefully there will be a meeting. >> i i want to
, and help you find the aarp medicare supplement plan that's right for you. martha: well lawmakers are stepping up pressure now on the obama administration, lawmakers from both sides of the aisle we should point out including john kerry. they want to reveal all the details of the deadly libyan attack. after two weeks of continuous clanking stories on this, arizona senator john mccain says it is disgraceful that the white house blamedded attack initially on quote, spontaneous protests. here he is. >> the thing that is disturbing about this naivete, the fundamental ignorance of warfare. look, this was an attack on its face. heavy weapons, mortars, a, well-synchronized direct fire and indirect fire attack. the thing that is really scary about it is, that the people in the region believe the united states is weak and withdrawing. martha: john bolton joins me now, former u.s. ambassador to the u.n. fox news contributor. is he right? >> absolutely. look, i think there are only two explanations for the administration's performance. one they're engaged in a cover-up because it is political
, gregg. gregg: all right. jenna: breaking news this hour. new criticism of the obama administration's handling of the deadly attack on our consulate in libya. some lawmakers are now claiming the white house misled them by calling the assault, a spontaneous protest that spun out of control. this after sources confirm that u.s. intelligence knew the attack was a terrorist attack within the first 24 hours. chief intelligence correspondent catherine herridgewashington with more on this. catherine, when we say some lawmakers are making this claim we're referring to high-ranking republicans. what about the democrats? is this bipartisan this criticism in nature? >> reporter: it is now, jenna. good morn. late thursday we had a letter from the senate foreign relations committee, it is pa bipartisan letter and sent to the deputy secretary of state asking about more information in the security situation in benghazi and what they are doing to mitigate the threat and what they knew about the growing threat of al qaeda and islamist militias in the eastern libya. as well as the overrunning of the
trade and they have fallen sharply after the banks announced a 2.5 billion euro rights issue. president obama continues to maintain his lead over mitt romney with two days before their first debate and 35 days before the election. new poll shows 49% of likely voters favoring the president versus 47% for romney. amongst all registered voter, obama holds a 5 point lead. but 52% of likely voters across key swing states favor the president. you'll be able to get full coverage of wedding who's presidential debate right here on cnbc, it starts at 8:00 p.m. eastern. a july says the rules set to go into effect october 12th won't properly justified by the cftc, the rules would cap the size of positions trading firms can take in certain commodity contracts and expand restrictions to swaps trade. meanwhile nokia has another big customer. the "wall street journal" says the company is going to unveil a deal with oracle take. the company's oracle world conference in san francisco. nokia's recently signed deals as well with groupon and amazon which dropped google maps. shares up marginally this mornin
it comes to health care reform very >> health care is not our right in the sense we don't authorize the government to take for other people to provide the american people with health care. healthcare is a privilege. >> but this obama supporters sees a different america. he says the government is not giving people the help they need. >> health care is not a privilege. health-care is right. playing golf is a privilege. you don't have to play golf. >> he can afford to buy private insurance for themselves and his family, but as a presbyterian minister, he often crop -- often comes across people his lights have been turned upside down by the economic crisis. that's why a lot with most of the members of this parish council, he was to see president obama reelected. he wants to see more opportunities for those who are less well-off, especially when it comes to education. many students are left with crippling debt after graduating from college. he's a big supporting -- supporter of low-interest student loans. >> i like the fact that with two children in college, that college loans will not h
the obama administration is doing right now it's not that many believe could different than what the bush administration did in the two terms especially at the end and given that there is that consensus that's one of the reasons they are not issued in the political campaign but i think it's also one of the reasons why things are in the national security area. >> this will be the last security to that question. >> i think a lot will depend on who the next president is, because i think that there will be several justices who are getting older but i think most of them would feel if they are voluntarily retiring and not forced to do so by health concerns or some other extenuating circumstances the honorable thing to do would be retiring during the term of the party that appointed you in the first place so you could see justice ginsburg now that she's accomplished. i think she's trying to make a record for how long she's on the court and she will accomplish that in 2014. you may see scalia or kennedy retire if they get president romney. it makes a huge potential shift in the court based on the
demanding their rights does not end in a psyching of sectarian violence. >> woodruff: mr. obama's republican opponent mitt romney cited the same issues before the clinton global initiative conference in new york. but romney implied the real problem is a failure of u.s. leadership. >> a lot of americans are troubled by developments in the middle east. syria has witnessed the killing of tens of thousands of people. the president of egypt is a member of the muslim brotherhood. our ambassador to libya was assassinated in a terrorist attack. iran is moving toward nuclear weapons capability. >> woodruff: romney used tougher language yesterday in pueblo, colorado. then he criticized the president's remarks in his 60 minutes interview that the arab spring brought many challenges for the u.s. and that there would be bumps in the road. >> these are not bumps in the road. these are human lives. these are developments we do not want to see. this is time for the president who will shape events in the middle east not just be merciful or be at mercy to the events in the middle east. >> woodruff: the presid
-- dignitaries left and right. >>guest: he was trying to project a united front around the world. i will figure this out. i'm tough on national security. >>neil: but last year, president obama was meeting with a host of people. the year before, a healthy host of people. >>guest: they are not saying it is driven by politics. we are a few weeks from re-election. he is trying to show an image of confidence. in addition to "the view," a camera heard the president talking to a security guard that he must have recognized from a previous u.n. speech saying "still rooting for the jets." he is talking about the u.n. talking about football. we will talk about the green bay and what happened last night. >>neil: maybe he can get on the ref thing. >>reporter: he is taking, look, i don't have a care in the world. cruising to re-election. >>neil: you are here. even with all the traffic with the u.n. thing. things have subsideed. i am keeping a close eye on you. this could be a fake rally. thank you, ed. >> it is official. health care premiums are way up. is the president's time up in. >> we will work with you
. it was like 44, 30 to last time. right now, obama has the edge. the senate race, we're seeing routinely as the average 85% of the people who vote for obama are voting for the democratic candidate. i think is very likely that whoever wins the presidential race in virginia, there will also win the event of the senate race. >> when you're looking at this affluent voters, many are connected to the boom that the public spending. that is also something that chip to perception of the two campaigns. but the numbers are very close to nationally. the noncom the whites are a little worse. a lot of the blue-collar whites are also evangelical. i did their strong candidates. will the democratic primary look like. hillary clinton is an important figure. she is not intensely disliked by last affluent republicans. she has a very distinctive political identity. is there a voice that says the party has to reach a broader range of voters? >> cristina think did not scale up. -- christie, i think, did not scale up. daniel, ryan -- is there a candid who invented the jeb bush analysis if mitt romney loses? >>
for the right to work legally under a new obama administration policy called deferred action for childhood arrivals. the california law builds on that policy and will now allow the department of motor vehicles to issue licenses to illegal immigrants as long as they meet certain criteria. they have to have crossed the border before they were 16, have been in the u.s. continuously for the past five years, be under 30 years of age and enrolled in school or a certified training program. >> the requirements, i have to take... >> i think it's okay just because it wasn't their choice when they were brought into the country. so it's only fair for them to be able to get a driver's license. >> reporter: while some argue that california should leave immigration issues to the federal government, the law drew bipartisan support even among those opposed to illegal immigration. >> i think we should encourage people to come over here legally but we also have a lot of illegal people doing work for us. and i think punishing people for something that happened when they were a kid is improper. >> reporter: no
. right now, much of the international community is focused on the conflict in syria. u.s. president barack obama in his address called for world leaders to end the regime of bashar al assad. >> the emir of qater, which is reportedly spending symbols -- emir of qatar, reportedly funding rebels, went so far as to say the regime should be taken down. russia and china indicated they have no intention of abandoning assad. >> the conflict in syria overshadowed every other topic at the opening of the general assembly in new york. the u.n. security council remains divided over sanctions against damascus, which have been blocked by syrian allies. u.n. secretary-general ban ki- moon renewed his call for sanctions against syria. >> this is a serious and growing international -- that to international security. >> he said the council could no longer turn a blind eye to syria where he said the conflict has claimed 27,000 lives. u.s. president barack obama also condemned the violence. >> in syria, the future must not belong to a dictator who massacres his people. if there is a cause that cries out
very close along those lines. right now, though, for the moment, the race looks like mitt romney is slipping and obama is in front. >>neil: i was talking about an easy electoral win to the president if you buy the polls, and i don't, but the popular vote is tight. on to what is happening in the swing states, republican governors like to point out and we will elaborate on that, wait a minute. we are running these states, you are seeing the improvements in a last them because republican governors are exacting the changes. what do you say do that? >>guest: it complicates mitt romney's tack. he is trying to make the case that obama is not good for the economy and we are worse off than four years ago but in a lot of states, in florida rick scott and in ohio, john kasich, they have unemployment rates under the national average. romney has had his message undercut. >>neil: where does that come? when times are good the incumbent benefits and the times are bad, he doesn't. the governor is not inconsequential although he or should be in the scheme of things, if they are not up for election
and alliance banquet in columbus. >>> concern right now among some republicans about the accuracy of some of the presidential polling coming from some of the mainstream media. one claim that some surveys oversample democrats, a trend that could give president obama an edge over governor mitt romney on election day if republican voters don't think they can close the gap. chief congressional correspondent mike emanuel reports now from washington. >> go up and down, we have plenty of time. >> history shows late september leads can evaporate by election day. in 1968, hub bert humphrey was down 15 points to richard nixon. while nixon won it was by less than 1%. in 1976, jimmy carter had a lead over gerald ford. after three debates, ford cut the lead to five points and led in the final gallup poll though narrowly lost. in 1980, carter maintained a consistent advantage over ronald reagan, but the final presidential debate changed everything leading to a reagan landslide. with polls now showing president obama building a lead over mitt romney in key battleground states, a democratic pollster and
. do you hear my name six times every time you hear obama's name or romney's name 100 times? no, you hear my name one time for every 5,000 times, 5,000 times you hear these guys names. if i was just being reported right now for where i'm at from a polling standpoint i suggest to you, that the six wouldn't be six. it would be 8, 11, 18. that i would be the next president of the united states because i think people really understand we're in deep doo-doo in this country and we can't bury our heads in the sand. when you listen to obama or romney, by extension i guess we think santa claus, the easter bunny and tooth fairy are coming. they're not. we have to fix this. mutual sacrifice on part of all of us. these guys are not doing either party, status quo don't do anything at all. melissa: i hear you. we gave you your time. we're fair and balanced. we're in deep doo-doo. thank you for coming on, gary johnson. watch fox business's special coverage of tomorrow's presidential debate even though gary is not in it. maybe he will be in the next one. neil cavuto kicks off coverage beginning at 8
it. we have five minutes. we can negotiate a deal right here. do you favor the plan, senator obama? senator mccain, are you in favor of this plan? >> we have not seen the language yet. i think there is constructive work being done out there for the viewers who are watching. i am optimistic. the question i think we need to ask ourselves is how did we get into this situation in the first place? two years ago, i warned that because of the relaxed regulation, we would potentially have a problem in trying to stop the abuses and mortgages that were taking place at the time. last year, i wrote to the secretary of treasury to make sure he understood the magnitude of this problem and to call on him to bring all the stakeholders together to try to deal with it. the question i think we have to ask ourselves is yes we have to solve this problem short term. we will have to intervene. there is no doubt about it. but we will also have to look at how is it that we have shredded so many regulations, we did not set up a 21st century regulatory framework to deal with these problems, and that is in pa
, "starting point" beginning right now. >>> morning, welcome everybody. our starting point this morning, president obama's high stakes speech on the world stage. in just a few hours he's going to be addressing the united nations general assembly in a just-released excerpt shows the president touching on the familiar theme which is preventing a nuclear iran, saying we respect the right of nations to access peaceful nuclear power, but one of the purposes of the united nations is to see that we harness that power for peace. make no mistake, a nuclear-armed iran is not a challenge that can be contained. richard roth is at the u.n. this morning for us. richard, good morning. much anticipation about the president's speech today. >> good morning, soledad. yes, president obama, as you mentioned, is going to be speaking about iran and other hot spots in the middle east. certainly we've seen huge stories developing in the last two weeks, especially after the killing of ambassador stevens in libya. for the united states president, once again, there will behose tough remarks about iran, saying time
